Our Construction Environmental Management Framework ensures that all environmental impacts during construction are managed effectively to the standards set out in our planning permission. Outlined below are a wide range of measures we delivered during 2017.
The Company is always looking at ways to be more energy effi cient during the intensive construction period. Within the constraints of a large construction project, the Company is working, together with its contractors, to proactively reduce carbon emissions.
In line with regulatory requirements, the Company’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) performance is calculated using the latest Greenhouse Gas Protocol and set out in the table below.
This includes direct GHG emissions from the combustion of fuels (Scope 1) and indirect GHG emissions from the consumption of purchased electricity, steam or other sources of energy (Scope 2).
As reporting procedures mature, the Company will look to include other indirect GHG emissions (Scope 3). In 2017 emissions totalled 2,063 tonnes of CO2e.
|Scope 1 emissions||1,943|
|Scope 2 emissions||120|
|Gross carbon emissions||2,063|
|Intensity metric: per £10m spend||129|
